Parent's Review of Tenby International School in Shah Alam, Malaysia

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

Tenby International School

In what town or city is this school located?

Shah Alam

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

British

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Nursery to year 13.

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Mostly by car, some by bus and few walk. I do see some early year kids going by bus and they are very tired end of the day travelling far from places like Hartamas. I don't feel that journey is worth for the little kids. A good kindy near home would be better.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

Price at canteen reasonable, but not much international cuisine. The library is good although it is rather silly -- kids aren't allowed to use it after school while waiting for parents. The school has good facilities but doesn't, have changing room for PE though the kids are required to change.

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

The class teachers are wonderful and they give personal care and help with the transition when parents ask for it.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

No PTA, No social activities for parents.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

chose if near, not worth travelling the distance.

One of the worst schools around. Started of great now there are around 650 students whereby the school is NOT able to handle the huge amount of mostly local students. Promises made during inception of school have been totally forgotten. No expat teachers even for secondary core subjects. I would NOT recommend it at all. Trust me I have been bitten and wasted 3 years there.

The 1st comment, from 'guest' is unfair. The school HAS grown too big, too fast, but there are loads of ex-pat teachers on site. Every Primary year has an ex-pat year leader. Secondary has an ex-pat Deputy Head, also Geography, DT, English, Drama, Head of KS3 and KS4, Sports/PE and Special needs co-ordinator. The Principal and Pastoral Deputy Head are also ex-pats.

Expats are attracted to Malaysia's lower cost of living, bustling cities, multicultural vibe, climate and proximity to Singapore. Many expat retirees take advantage of the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) program. For others who don't qualify, visa runs become a inconvenient part of expat life that often dissuade them from staying in Malaysia long-term.
